SYDNEY, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Australian film and theater director Baz Luhrmann says he worked with composers David Foster and Diane Warren on the music for "Strictly Ballroom the Musical."

The stage adaptation of Luhrmann's classic 1992 film "Strictly Ballroom" will also feature music by producer and composer Elliott Wheeler, recording artist Sia Furler, and singer-songwriter Eddie Perfect, Luhrmann revealed this week.

The show is to begin preview performances at Australia's Sydney Lyric Theatre March 25.

"Australian audiences will have the privilege of hearing new music and lyrics from some of the world's leading composers including Australia's own Elliott Wheeler, Sia Furler and Eddie Perfect, along with celebrated American songwriters David Foster and Diane Warren, who between them have won all the most prestigious music awards including Golden Globe, Emmy and Grammy Awards," a news release from the musical's producers said.
